PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL) Progress Update By Wololo


Sponsored Links
164w ago - Following up on his previous update, PlayStation Vita hacker wololo has shared a progress update on the PS Vita Half Byte Loader (HBL).

Additionally, Nabnab has also made available a video showcasing some hidden PS Vita information for those interested!

To quote: A quick report: I'm making some progress on porting HBL to the Vita. Although I'm sad to say that I can't get syscall estimation to work, I got some major homebrews such as Doom to run already, so overall I think it's in an acceptable shape.

Because it is roughly stable now, today I focused on porting HBL to the EU version of the exploited game (I was working - obviously - on the Japanese version of the game so far). This went smoothly and I can confirm HBL runs fine on the EU version of the game, although of course I could only test on a PSP, not on a Vita.

I used the opportunity to refresh my two guides, how to write a binary loader and how to port HBL. The guides are now simplified, and the binary loader tutorial now has download links to the tools used in the examples.

Writing the first "usable" version of HBL for the patapon exploit took several developers and about 4 months. Thanks to the portability of HBL, bringing it to Teck4′s exploit took me only a few days. Adapting that to the EU version took a couple hours (including porting the exploit itself), so I am confident for the US version.

So a kind of Universal Thread where everything ongoing from the Vita u-ground scene goes in. I mean sounds great. Reminds me on a Wiki by the way does some one update a wiki ?

You don't need to do that cfwprophet but thanks anyway !

I was thinking to make a topic and put all what i did and what i'm doing on it but i think it's a little bit too late.

Some people probably don't understand why all that are on the firmware update/CMA topic.

It would be nice if we can create a topic for all the PS vita underground stuff (not only mine)

I think it is so only because PSVita isn't yet sold all over the world. Just it will be available for all contries more people will pay attention to the psvita underground scene.

However what you are doing is great, so thank you, man!

Between 0 and 0.04 (picture shows the helloworld with my python/pyusb script available on PS3news) and about the video, i show that the PS Vita is really turned ON (and not off) and on debug USB mode.

This is just the beginning

After a test and some kernel playing.

Check the error of my PS Vita
